Actual difference

As it pertains to use on a D800 or D4, what's the difference between an AI lens and an AI-S lens. I've never owned an AI, just a few AI-S. I'm not interested in the physical difference, just what that difference translates into in actual use.  My guess would be that you can't adjust aperature from the camera and would have to do it on the lens on an AI. Could someone clarify the difference/s?  Thanks
